Visit Independence

Small Town… Big Possibilities!


Independence is located in the beautiful prairie hills and grasslands of Southeast Kansas. We are proud to have a variety of small unique shops, blended nicely with name brand stores along the streets of our historic downtown district and scattered throughout our community. From a pizza parlor featured in USA Today’s Best 51 Pizza Parlors to mouth watering steaks, freshly ground jalapeno burgers and an array of drinks to quench your thirst, our restaurants and pubs know how to serve up a great dining experience.

Independence is also home to a beautiful park and zoo, golf courses, lakes, aquatic center, hiking trails, museums and historic sites including Little House on The Prairie Museum and homesite. Turn of the century homes, tree lined streets and a historic downtown makes our community a one-of-a-kind experience.

We invite you to visit Independence, Kansas and experience all we have to offer. You won’t be disappointed!
